Struggling to think of a gift idea for a friend or family member who just has it all? It’s time to think again. Christmas shopping no longer needs to drone on as Drone Major comes to the rescue. The online drone portal company has compiled a Christmas list of what it believes to be some of the best drones on the market at different price points.

The VIDEODRONE X4S, available on the recently launched Drone Major portal is supposedly the most powerful in its size class. With a flight time of up to 50 minutes and fitted with the Sony RX1R2 camera, there’s no doubt that the footage will impress even the most experienced photographers. 

This drone enables you to capture everything from those once in a lifetime experiences to everyday activities from a previously unseen and enviable perspective. There’s also a flight planning software which enables users to plan autonomous flights. For £26,000 this quadcopter drone could be yours...

If you’re looking for something slightly cheaper, but equally as impressive the Altura Zenith from AerialTronics is also available on the Drone Major portal. The Altura Zenith has a flight time of 40 minutes and with the largest payload compatibility and a simple and fast 'click and go' system, it's supposedly the most flexible drone on the market.

Equipped with the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 Module (the world's first supercomputer on a module), this is a must have for tech-heads. The Pensar can collect and analyse data in real time, allowing operators to check and verify results immediately after flight, rather than spending hours on post-processing the data. For £17,533 this drone could be yours...

Priced at just under £5,000, the Squad 3 EscaDrone is one of the most efficient and stable drones on the market for its price. With a flight time of 30 minutes, this quadcopter weighs just under 4kg and has a foldable frame so it’s easily transportable when not in flight mode and quick and easy to set-up. Available on the Drone Major website, this drone is a suitable gift to capture the ultimate drone’s eye view.
